WELLESLEY, MASS., MARCH 7, 1946 



NO. 15 



Lit. and Speech 
Departments to 
Hear Lecture 

Dr. George B. Harrison, Pro- 
fessor of English at Queens Col- 
lege, Kingston, Ontario, will lec- 
ture on "The Background of 
King Lear" March 12 at 7:30 in 
Pendleton Hall. The lecture, 
sponsored by the Departments of 
English Literature and Speech, 
will be given under the Furness 
Lecture Foundation, established 
in 1887 by the Shakespearean 
editor Horace Howard Furness. 

Dr. Harrison went to Queens 
College, Cambridge as a classic- 
al exhibitioner in 1913. In the 
first World War he served in the 
infantry in India and Mesopot- 
amia. He returned to Cambridge 
in 1919 and studied English Lit- 
erature, specializing in the Eliz- 
abethan period. For many years 
he was a reader in English Liter- 
ature at the University of Lon- 
don. 

During the past war he served 
in the Royal Army Service Corps 
and the Intelligence Corps. Upon 
his release from the Army in 
1943 he took up his present po- 
sition as Head of the Department 
of English at Queens University. 

Professor Harrison is familiar 
to Wellesley students through 
the long list of his historical and 
critical writings and his edi- 
tions of 16th and 17th century 
authors. His best known works 
are the four volumes of Eliza- 
bethan and Jacobean Joumuls in 
which he traces from day to day 
those events which existed at 
the time of Shakespeare and his 
contemporaries. He is also the 
author of Shakespeare at Work, 
The Life and Death of Robert 
Devereux, Earl of Essex, Eliza- 
bethan Plays and Players, and 
the editor of the Bodley Head 
Quartos and The Penguin 
sinil.cspeares. 

The lecture on "King Lear" 
is designed for a general aud- 
ience and is open to the public.

Delegates from 
College Papers 
Attend Meeting 

Five delegates from News at- 
tended the first Intercollegiate 
News Conference at Smith Col- 
lege on Saturday and Sunday, 
March 2 and 3. The purpose of 
the conference was "to bring to- 
gether college newspapers in the 
New England area for the dis- 
cussion of common problems, for 
exchange of information, and for 
the promotion of cooperation be- 
tween them." 

Mary Alice Cullen '46, Nancy 
Ipsen '46, Barbara Conner '46, 
Barbara Boggs '46, and Doris 
Bieringer '46 represented Wel- 
lesley at the conference which in- 
cluded representatives from ten 
New England Colleges. 

A system of cooperation and 
close communication among the 
various college newspapers con- 
cerning their policies, problems, 
and important events was estab- 
lished. Exchange editors will be 
elected by each paper to carry 
out this program through ex- 
change newspapers and personal 
letters to the colleges. Annual 
conferences will be held where 
editors may become acquainted 
and discuss their problems more 
fully. 

Tentative plans have been 
made for the establishment of an 
inter-col lege telegraph system by 
which particularly important 
campus news may be commun- 
icatod between the newspajn trs

Dr. Paul L. Lehman will

Seniors Will 
Rib Faculty In 
Mock Council 

Wellesley's annual dramatic 
classic, Mock Academic Council, 
will be presented by the senior 
class in Alumnae Hall at 4:40, 
Thursday, March 14. As usual 
the whole play is deeply veiled 
in secrecy; but Mary Jo Lamb, 
head of production, has confided 
that it is about "something that 
happened sometime somewhere 
on campus." 

For the benefit of freshmen 
and strangers Jo Lamb explained 
that mock council is based on 
the principle that "the faculty 
take themselves off every four 
years in Faculty Show, and the 
seniors do it in between times 
at mock academic council." 

Following tradition of long- 
standing this year's council will 
be a highly exclusive affair. Only 
Dean Lucy Wilson and Dean 
Marjorie Ilsley among the faculty 
have been honored with invita- 
tions. For their own protection 
the freshmen will also be ex- 
cluded. The Freshmen officers 
will be posted outside the audi- 
torium to keep their classmates 
from yielding to temptation. 

The plot is very informal with 
each member of the cast writing 
her own part; but Jo Lamb and 
Kay Sears Hamilton, as script 
committee, have blocked out the 
general outline of the action. 
This year's production will be 
further embellished with a song 
by Barbara Chapline. Tink Mar- 
tin is in charge of lighting; Suzie 
Johnston and Ginger Gauntlett 
head the make-up committee; 
and Prue Mayhew and Jane For- 
sythe are looking for props. 

The price of admission for the 
three upper classes, who are cor- 
dially and legally invited will be 
a contribution for the United Na- 
tions Food Relief, to be collected 
at the door. 



New Students 
Describe Life 
In Java, Italy 

"What army do youse belong 
to?" was the question Winifred 
Angenent, '48, was asked when 
she arrived in New York in De- 
cember, clad in a large G. I. uni- 
form. The uniform had been 
issued to Winnie and several 
other women just before they 
embarked on the troopship for 
the United States from Calcutta 
where they had been sent after 
their liberation from a concen- 
tration camp in Java. 

Winnie is one of several new 
students from foreign countries 
who have entered Wellesley this 
semester. Born in Batavia, Java, 
where her father was in the 
Dutch civil service, Winnie has 
lived there all her life except 
three early years in Holland. 
Her mother is an American and 
a graduate of Wellesley. 

From December 1942 until 
1945 Winnie was interned in Java 
in a camp of 8000 women and 
children. "There were no men 
in the camp and no boys over 
ten," she said, describing it. 
Also there was no educational 
system because books and class- 
vere not allowed. When lib-

Theodore Morrison, poet and 
member of the Harvard Univer- 
sity faculty, will read selections 
from his work at the second 
Poet's Reading of the semester 
Monday, March 11, in Pendleton 
Hall. This lecture will be the 
fifth in the annual series spon- 
sored by the Katherine Lee 
Bates Fund and arranged by 
Miss Elizabeth W. Manwaring, 
Chairman of the Department of 
English Composition. 

Mr. Morrison is Lecturer and 
Director of Freshman English 
at Harvard University. During 
the summer he serves as a mem- 
ber of the faculty of the Bread- 
loaf School of English in Middle- 
bury, Vermont. Since 1932 he 
has been director of the Writers' 
Conference in Middlebury, a 
group designed for the study of 
professional writing which has 
served as a model for similar 
conferences throughout t h e 
country. 

Mr. Morrison has contributed 
his work to many magazines, 
and has been a member of the 
editorial staff of the Atlantic 
Monthly and the Atlantic Press. 
His published volumes of poetry 
include The Serpent in the Cloud, 
a narrative poem; Notes of Life 
and Death, a collection of poems 
published in 1935; and his recent 
The Devious Way,., published in 
1944.

Formerly associated with the 
Repertory Theater and the Copley 
Theater in Boston, Mr. Rollins 
founded one of the first summer 
theaters in the United States, the 
Surry Playhouse, in 1929. This

THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE 

Once again we approach major elections, as 
the class of 1947 steps up to relieve 1946 of of- 
fice. It is an exciting time for the whole college 
as we watch to see who will take over the leader- 
ship for the coming year, and hope for the 
very best that 1947 has to offer. 

But we are not just watching and hoping; 
we are also voting. Under our system of college- 
wide election the choice depends solely upon the 
student body. We are all responsible for the suc- 
cess uf the coming year which in large measure 
rests upon the shoulders of the officers whom we 
are about to elect. Are we all qualified to as- 
sume that responsibility? In a college of fifteen 
hundred students no one knows everybody, 
and few girls outside the junior class will know 
all the candidates on the ballot. The freshmen 
in particular are at a great disadvantage. They 
know their Vil Juniors and their Big Sisters-, 
and a few of their friends, but they have no pos- 
sible way of knowing the junior class well. 

Every year College Government tries to im- 
press upon everyone the necessity of voting 
only when you know at least two of the candi- 
dates running. To know a candidate does not 
imply just knowing her name because she sits in 
the back row of your history class, or because 
you thought she was pretty and asked someone 
who she was. Before casting her ballot each 
voter should ask herself "How good will this girl 
be for this particular office?" If your honest 
answer is "I don't know" then DON'T VOTE. 
Because a girl happened to be a good Vil Junior 
it does not necessarily follow that she would 
make the best President of C.A. or C.G. or 
Torura 

If you do vote, vote for all three so that the 
single transferrable ballot may be used. 

The freshman class is always large, and ac- 
cordingly swings a great deal of weight in an all 
college election. '49 has a real responsibility to 
the rest of the college to vote only when they 
know why they're voting the way they are. 

Talk to your big sisters, meet the girls you're 
voting for if you can, but remember that you 
have been here a comparatively short time. It 
is no reflection upon your school spirit if you 
don't vote, but it may be if you do, and do so 
thoughtlessly. 



THE UNFINISHED BATTLE 

"A new war more horrible than those gone 
before has been fought and won, but we have 
not yet closed the books." Thus the N. Y. Times 
has epitomized the need for continued Red Cross 
•lid to our veterans here at home an to the people 
of :i devastated Europe. Wellesley's slogan for 
its drive "The Red Cross Battle Goes On" re- 
minds us, too, as we cannot be too often re- 
minded, that the Red Cross still has an enor- 
mous job to perform. 

We have not yet closed the books. This re- 
mains true despite the fact that the national 
goal set by the Red Cross is $100,000,000 as 
compared with the $200,000,000 asked last year. 
For this year's goal is the largest peacetime fund 
ever sought by the organization. It is less than 
the amount asked last year partly because some 
of the activities of the Red Cross have been cur- 
tailed with the end of the war, but principally 
because last year the American people gave so 
much more than was asked that $60,000,000 of 
the $160,000,000 which the organization expects 
to spend this year can be drawn from past oves- 
subscriptions. The very fact that the Red Cross 
now, even with this surplus, is asking more than 
it has ever asked in peacetime makes this drive 
not a new peacetime battle but rather a part of 
the whole struggle in which the world has been 
engaged since 1939. 

Wellesley College has recognized the im- 
portance of this year's drive by setting as its 
quota $2,800, a sum obviously exceeding the 
customary peacetime dollar membership goal. 
This drive demands as much of us as a war- 
time drive would. In many small ways we are 
being reminded that wartime conditions are still 
with us. This is our opportunity to show that we 
have not become deadened to the greater needs 
resulting from the war simply because these 
needs touch us less directly than the smaller in- 
conveniences. Only if we consider this drive as 
a part of an unfinished battle shall we be able 
to prevent the poverty and disillusionment at 
home and abroad which will lay the basis for 
another world war.

HOUSEWORK QUESTIONNAIRE 

The questionnaire on required housework is 
now in the hands of the student body. This 
questionnaire should not be abused by those 
who are over-eager to unload their accumulated 
gripes upon the investigating committee. The 
committee has asked for a serious evaluation 
of the housework program; they intend to treat 
our replies seriously, and it is our responsibility 
to answer their questions thoughtfully. This of 
course does not exclude criticism of the pro- 
gram. But the students should recognize the dis- 
tinction between griping and criticizing. 

Undeniably there is room for criticism. 
There are valid arguments on both sides of the 
question. News does not intend to take a stand 
on the problem at this time, because we are more 
concerned with having the entire student body 
consider the questions honestly and seriously 
than we are in making our particular views 
triumph. The actions which the college will take 
for next year will be determined by the students' 
response. If you would prefer room-cleaning to 
waitress duty, stop to consider whether you will 
tend to overlook your sloppy habitation, and 
whether you're going to gripe about an inspec- 
tion of rooms. On the other hand, isn't it possible 
that work might go more smoothly if you clean- 
ed your own room on your own time instead 
of on a schedule? If you wish the waitresses had 
special training to curb their dish-snatehing im- 
pulses, would you yourself be willing to learn a 
special job and carry it out with increased 
skill and satisfaction? How good do you think 
you would be if you participated in planning 
and overhead management of the dormitories; 
are you willing to try to do it well? Or is that 
going to increase demands on the students' time, 
which are already bad enough in the total 
picture? Do you honestly feel you ought to be 
1'ji id for your contributions to the community 
liing — are you doing a job in a way that makes 
it worth the money? If Wellesley went on a co- 
operative system, would you shudder and want 
to transfer or can you be fair-minded enough 
to appreciate the possibility of its values to a 
liberally educated and socially responsible in- 
individual? 



"Senator Andrews, Democrat, 
of Florida, expressed 'delight', 
saying: 'I'm glad the President 
accepted Ickes' resignation. I 
think we can get along without 
him. Honesty isn't the only at- 
tribute required of a public ser- 
vant." — The World Telegram. 

"It's sort of a help, though, at 
that." — The New Yorker. 

The indifferent valuation of 
honesty displayed in the Sena- 
tor's comment seems to have 
been creeping into the veins of 
the present administration. The 
reference is to Mr. Pauley, 
against whom the evidence 
seems even on the surface fairly 
damning. The objection to his 
appointment by one of the Gov- 
ernment's administrators most 
respected for his honesty held 
no weight with Mr. Hannegan, 
Postmaster General and dispens- 
er of the party spoils. The Presi- 
dent supported him, although it 
looks as though the Senate may 
not. There was a premonition 
of this sort of thing at the Demo- 
cratic National Convention in 
1944. Hannegan was then nation- 
al .chairman of the party and in 
control of the agenda pretty 
much. He was putting forth his 
pet, Truman, from the home 
town and the general vicinity of 
the Prendergast machine, as can- 
didate for vice-president. At 
eight o'clock Thursday night, the 
auditorium was jammed. Every- 
one was waiting for the ballot- 
ing for vice-president which was 
scheduled to take place that 
evening. The trend seemed to be 
very much in favor of Wallace. 
Many felt that he would get the 
nomination if the balloting were 
done as scheduled. Jackson, 
Chairman of the Convention, be- 
ing in cahoots with Hannegan, 
for no reason other than to leave 
Thursday night free for gather- 
ing votes for Truman, called the 
evening meeting to adjourn, ig- 
nored the cries of protest, and 
announced that the balloting 
would take place the next day 
instead. The power politics that 
swept Truman into the position 
of candidate for vice-president, 
no matter how one may have felt 
about the wisdom of the choice, 
foreboded no remarkable good 



about the honesty of political ap- 
pointments with Mr. Hannegan 
at the helm. 

The case of Mr. Pauley is per- 
haps a more flagrant example of 
our questionable public officials. 
The incidence of corruption in 
small public officials whose ways 
are not under such close public 
observation may be suspected to 
be many times worse. To take 
a small example, during a strike 
in a nearby town, the police were 
sent out to keep law and order 
among the pickets. Although the 
pickets were well-behaved and 
had not displayed any violence 
before, the police force that ar- 
rived came near to outnumber- 
ing the strikers. They were 
equipped with a baseball bat, 
angry glares, and not the most 
flattering repertoire of com- 
ments up their sleeves. The po- 
licemen immediately assumed 
that the strikers had no interest 
other than causing a mob riot 
and started ordering people into 
single file, with the gruff com- 
mand of "Keep moving" They 
were there to keep order if any 
disturbance should occur. No dis- 
turbance had occurred or was 
likely to; there was no loss of 
order for them to restore. Never- 
theless, they took the attitude 
of restoring order in spite of it- 
self, and acted as if the strikers 
had thrown the Haymarket 
Bomb. One of your cocky school- 
mates who was present re- 
marked hotly to a man in plain 
clothes who was obviously the 
boss of the outfit, "You have no 
right to take sides like this. You 
are here to keep order, not scare 
the pickets away. You are not 
working for the company, you 
are the servants of the people." 
This irate figure turned out to 
be the Chief of Police who rose 
up in all his wrath and shouted, 
"Now, you just wait a minute, 
young lady. You watch what you 
are saying ... we ain't no ser- 
vants of nobody!" In a word, 
the chief of police expressed the 
lamentable tendencies of certain 
of those who rule us that they 
ain't no servants of nobody, and 
they are in the game for them- 
selves. If we don't show signs of 
protest, they are likely to go on 
thinking that way. 



FREE PRESS 



To the Editor: 

The one thread of continuity in 
our three years at college has 
been the recurrent library situa- 
tion. A bitter note. But doesn't 
the situation warrant it? 

Every year an editorial con- 
taining the vague threat of 
closing the stacks appears. Every 
year the work of a majority of 
students suffers because of an 
irresponsible, selfish few. Every 
year nothing is done. 

Let's close the stacks.

! O 

To the Editor of Neivs: 

Gerard Verdiere is an eight- 
year-old French boy whose 
father and mother were killed 
during the war. My daughters 
sent him a small package at 
Christmas time and have since 
sent two a month containing 
clothing and food. We did not 
hear from him until this week. 
Then came his picture and the 
following letter. Students who 
are sending packages to French 
children and have not heard from 
them will perhaps be encour- 
aged to keep on when they look 
at this picture. Others may 
think they would like to have a 
small protege. If so, Mrs. de 
Morinni can furnish a list of des- 
titute children who can be saved 
at least some suffering if they 
regularly receive small packages 
of concentrated foods. Directions 
for mailing and advice on the 
kinds of foods can also be ob- 
tained from Mrs. de Morinni. It 
was from her list that I took 
Gerard's name at random two 
months ago.

c'est un grand merci je vous dois, 
car ces friandises mon fait un

WEIXESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, MARCH 7, 1946 



'News' Quizzes Language 
Lit., Geography Majors 



This week, in the third of the 
series presenting the opinions 
and suggestions of seniors ma- 
joring in the various depart- 
ments of the college, News inter- 
views French, Geography, and 
German majors. 

French 

"Some people seem to feel that 
a language is an impractical ma- 
jor. It would be if you stu- 
died it in a vacuum," declared 
Barbara Rogers '46, "but I think 
it is one of the few 'arty' liberal 
arts courses that can be related 
to something practical." Barbie 
feels that her French major can 
be related to nearly every other 
course she has taken. "And be- 
sides that, most of the valuable 
things that have ever been said 
have been either said or com- 
mented on by a Frenchman." 

Anyone majoring in French, 
Barbie advises, should have eith- 
er a love for literature or an in- 
terest in the mechanics of lang- 
uage as a language although it 
helps to have both. "Of course 
the literature and music of the 
French are wonderful in them- 
selves," she stated, "but — and 
this is very important just now — 
the French language also pro- 
vides an insight into the 
thoughts and personality of the 
French people." Barbie agrees 
with those who feel that person- 
ality is expressed in the idiom. 

There are any number of com- 
binations of related courses pos- 
sible with a French major, Bar- 
bie finds. In addition to the 
language itself, one must have 
something to talk about in the 
language. For those who want to 
apply their French in a practical 
way there are three big fields of 
application — teaching, economics, 
or political science. "In many ex- 
panding businesses or profes- 
sions, training in a foreign lan- 
guage is a must," she declared, 
"and this is especially true of 
the interesting work that will be 
available with the U.N.O." Bar- 
bie herself hopes to study Eng- 
lish literature in England next 
year and then work in the educa- 
tional department of the U. N. O. 
Geography 

"Geography is a basic science 
from which the natural sciences 
'such as geology and botany 
grow," said Barbara Chapline 
'46, "and about the only essential 
for a Geography major is an 
interest in the world." Having 
traveled and read travel books 
all her life, and with a mother 
who is also a geographer, Chap- 
py has always liked "knowing 
about places." 

Geography is related to nearly 
all other courses, she believes— 
especially to languages and to 
history, economics, and political 
science. "In Reconstruction class, 
for example, we study the 'have- 
not' nations— those who lack raw 
materials and begin aggressions 
against their neighbors in order 
to control supplies of those mate- 
rials. The distribution of raw 
materials is one of the most im- 
portant things in relation to the 
study of geography," Chappy 
said. 

Her post-college plans include 
getting into journalism through 
geography and for this she is 
taking related courses in the De- 
partment of English Composi- 
tion. Since the war the world has 
become even smaller than it 
seemed in pre-war days. Islands 



in the Pacific, cities in Europe — 
all sound nearly as familiar to 
us now as San Francisco or Chi- 
cago. "Everyone is waking up 
and wanting to know about the 
world," she says, "and there are 
very few trained geographers to 
tell them about it." 

As a background for nearly 
any sort of work Chappy finds 
geography almost perfect. Some 
of the positions open to Geogra- 
phy majors include such interest- 
ing work as newspaper or maga- 
zine research, jobs with steam- 
boat or airline companies, and 
teaching. "In studying Geogra- 
phy you get for the whole world 
what a language study gives you 
for one country," Chappy con- 
cluded. 

German 

"A real sympathy with a peo- 
ple and their beliefs can be 
gained only through understand- 
ing their language; and under- 
standing the German people is 
one of the first prerequisites for 
a lasting peace," Mary B. Morri- 
son '46, believes. Her German 
major, she feels, has greatly 
helped in this direction and she 
plans on spending some time in 
Germany after graduation. 

That quality called a "lan- 
guage aptitude" Mary B. says, 
is not really necessary for ma- 
joring in German. Only a gen- 
uine interest in the subject is 
needed. She herself had studied 
no German before coming to 
Wellesley. Interested in German 
mainly in connection with music, 
and "for itself alone — because of 
the enjoyment you can get from 
just reading it", she, like Barbie 
Rogers, believes that almost any 
courses can be taken profitably 
in relation to a language major. 
"Science, philosophy, history, lit- 
erature," she declared, "all tie 
in with German. A major in Ger- 
man is valuable, then, no matter 
what one's other interests." 

The after-college opportunities 
presented by a major in German 
are varied, Mary B. says, rang- 
ing from teaching and research 
to government work. Because of 
all the reconstruction work that 
must be done in Germany in the 
next few years she thinks that 
this occupational field will be one 
of the most promising for any- 
one with a knowledge of the Ger- 
man language and culture.

Carrilloneurs 
Choose Lyons, 
Wick as Heads 

Ruth Wick '48 was elected 
President of the newly organized 
Guild of the Wellesley Carillon- 
eurs at their first meeting Sun- 
day, February 17 in Cazenove. 
Ruth Lyons '48 was elected Sec- 
retary-Treasurer. Both girls will 
hold office through the end of the 
academic year. 

For the past year the carillon- 
eurs have been organized infor- 
mally under the guidance of Miss 
Florence Risley, Head of House 
at Cazenove. This group, with 
other interested students and 
faculty members, has formed the 
guild to present concerts each 
week-day morning from 8:00 to 
8:10, every afternoon from 5:30 
to 5:50, and each Sunday morn- 
ing from 10:20 to 11:00, with 
occasional concerts Saturday and 
Sunday afternoons. 



Barn Play Rehearsals 
Show Enthusiastic Spirit 



by Mary E. Dirlam 'Ifi 



Unlike many colleges, Welles- 
ley does not include its dra- 
matic program in the curricu- 
lum. In many ways, this fact 
would seem to indicate that the 
time and talent available for 
plays during the year would be 
subsequently lessened, and that 
inferior productions would be 
inevitable. That Barnswallows 
has succeeded in setting and 
maintaining its high standards 
is a tribute to the real interest 
of its members. "The zest and 
enthusiasm of the girls," Mr. 
Frederic Jessner states, "is one 
of the most heartening aspects 
of Wellesley dramatics." 

That zest and enthusiasm is 
the keynotp at a typical Barn 
rehearsal. These days, for about 
11 hours every week, a small, 
energetic group is working on 
the spring play, Night Must Fall. 
They are now feeling their way 
into the lines and plotting stage 
movements. Mary Lou Mac- 



Tufts Drama Society to Give 
Performance in Alum March 16 



World Federation activities 
for the next week include house 
discussion groups and sponsor- 
ship of the play Of Mice and 
Men, to be presented Saturday 
night March 16 in Alumnae Hall 
by the Tufts Dramatic Society. 

The house discussion sessions, 
which will be held next Thurs- 
day night, will be for the pur- 
pose of explaining what the 
World Federation group stands 
for, why such decisions were 
reached, and the reason that a 
plea for world government is be- 
ing made at this time. "Every- 
one who is interested in world 
government and the function of 
this committee is invited to at- 
tend, argue, and suggest," an- 
nounced Corky Baxter, '47, chair- 
man. 

Tofts College 

The dramatic Society of Tufts 
College is taking the play Of 
Mice and Men on a tour of neigh- 
boring colleges, and turning the 
profits over to the Student Fed- 
eralists, Corky announced. The 
play has already been presented 
at Smith and Radcliffe Colleges. 
The parts are all taken by stu- 
dents, with the women from Jack- 
son College, an affiliate of Tufts, 
playing the few female roles. 

Tickets for the play are on sale 
by the house World Federation 
representatives, and, beginning 
Wednesday, will be on sale at 
the ticket booth as well. The 



play begins at 8 o'clock next Sat- 
urday night. 

Student Federalist Paper 

The Student Federalist news- 
paper, which contains news of 
student activities for world gov- 
ernment, a coverage of the action 
of adult groups, and discussion 
of different issues confronting 
world federalists, is one sale at 
each house, or a subscription can 
be purchased for $1.00 annually 
by getting in touch with Jean de 
Beer, '47, business manager. "I 
cannot overemphasize the im- 
portance of this paper," Jean 
said. "It will keep those who 
read it informed of the situation 
and the activities of other col- 
leges, and the money for the sub- 
scription will be used to further 
the Student Federalist program 
as announced in the Concord 
Charter." 

In addition to the newspaper, 
the money will entitle subscrib- 
ers to a vote in all Student Fed- 
eralist activities, and to the right 
to participation in all programs 
planned by the nation-wide 
group. 



Isaac or Mimi Gilchrist may be 
moved a little upstage during a 
certain scene; Kitty Helm or 
Betty Hart may have to start 
walking during a speech. From 
the wings, stage managers Katie 
Etter and "Gil" Gillette keep 
careful watch of developments. 
This is the "blocking" stage of 
Night Must Fall, and it is also 
hard work. 

It would be a mistake, of 
course, to say that practical 
theatre work is not included at 
all in the academic program. 
Theatre Workshop offers valu- 
able training in theatrical arts, 
and has recently been working 
in conjunction with the "play- 
wrights" of English Composition 
304. The writers of some of the 
senior plays and the Theatre 
Workshop producers will com- 
bine their efforts to present the 
college with selected scenes dur- 
ing the first part of April. 

It may be that in the future 
the Composition and Speech stu- 
dents will further strengthen 
this interdepartmental coopera- 
tion. Perhaps, too, the Drama 
majors, who are required to 
take Theatre Workshop, will 
make even more direct contribu- 
tions to Barnswallows than at 
present. Whether or not Wel- 
lesley dramatics do develop 
along these lines is, of course, 
tied up with a consideration of 
the importance which actual 
theatre practice should be al- 
lowed to assume in a liberal 
arts college. In the meantime, 
the college has good reason to 
be grateful for the actresses, 
stage-workers and directors who 
continue to provide the student 
body with good plays, despite 
a lack of curricular emphasis 
upon drama.

Old Manuscript Inspires 
Srta. Oyarzabal's Study 



Ex-Sergeant John Mitchell 
Returns to History Dept. 



S. B. Liljegren 
Upsala Faculty 
Member, Speaks 

Professor S. B. Liljegren, Direc- 
tor of the Institute for the Ameri- 
can Studies in the University of 
Upsala, Sweden, spoke informally 
to members of the faculty at a 
tea in his honor given by Profes- 
sors Elizabeth W. Manwaring and 
Edith C. Johnson of the Depart- 
ment of English Composition 
Sunday, February 24, at Horton 
House. Professor Liljegren was a 
guest of the college at Tower 
Court from February 23 to Feb- 
uary 25. 

Professor Liljegren, who is al- 
so editor of Essays and Studies 
on American Language and Lit- 
erature, and Professor of English 
in the University, came to Amer- 
ica in January as representative 
of the Swedish government and 
guest of the Rockefeller Founda- 
tion. He is lecturing at various 
universities throughout the coun- 
try, and will go from Harvard 
and Wellesley to the University 
of Chicago. He was Visiting Pro- 
fessor at Columbia in 1937. He is 
the author of several scholarly 
works, his latest, published in 
1945, being "The Revolt against 
Romanticism in American Liter- 
ature as Evidenced in the Works 
of Samuel L. Clemens." 



"I love my study of heraldry," 
exclaimed Senorita Anita Oyarza- 
bal in speaking of the research 
she did in Mexico during the first 
semester, "for it makes a connec- 
tion between my two loves — 
Spain and Wellesley!" 

Senorita Oyarzabal's study of 
heraldry has followed a devious 
path from the time last year 
when a visiting Mexican librar- 
ian exclaimed over an untrans- 
lated document in the college lib- 
rary: this manuscript contained 
a noted coat of arms of the prov- 
ince of the visitor. "I decided to 
trace this coat of arms and the 
others in the manuscript to try 
to discover how many of them 
had become part of a national 
coat of arms. I knew nothing of 
heraldry, but after all, you're 
never too old to learn" she said. 

So in May of 1945 she went to 
Mexico City, to the Museum of 
Heraldry. There she was told that 
the person who knew the most 
about heraldry was the Duke 
Villamil, an elderly gentleman 
who seldom received visitors. 
"So," said Senorita Oyarzabal, "I 
just asked for an appointment, 
explaining what I wanted, and 
then sat and waited in the salon 
for the Duke. He is one of many 
such persons in Mexico with a 
title going back to 16th century 
Spain, but little money. 

"Soon a very small man, cloak- 
ed in an old Spanish cape, accom- 
panied by his majordomo, enter- 
ed. But how much dignity was in 
that little man! And how much 
interest ! He assisted me in every 
way, offering me the freedom of 
his library and initiating me into 
the secrets of heraldry. I learned 
how each color has its own his- 
tory — and how an expert never 
speaks of colors as such. For in- 
stance, 'black' is always referred 
to as 'sable.* And the Jerusalem 
coat of arms is the only one al- 
lowed to have metal on metal. 
Ah! He was so helpful!" 

The cooperation and assistance 
which she met in Mexico made a 
rfeen impression upon Senorita 
OyarzabaL "It was not like doing

research in some places where 
you cling tightly to each bit of 
information you have discovered 
for fear someone else will take 
advantage of your discovery," she 
said. "Instead, everyone scurried 
around to find things for me, and 
were just as enthusiastic as I in 
the search." In the National Lib- 
rary, where very few of the books 
are catalogued and I had to go 
painstakingly through stacks of 
books piled to the ceiling, every- 
one was most helpful." 

She has reached the conclusion 
that the manuscript in the Wel- 
lesley College Library is a very 
rare book which has never been 
printed, written by at least two 
persons of Castile in the 17th 
Century. A translation of this 
manuscript, with its descriptions 
of coats of arms should fill in 
many gaps in the study of heral- 
dry. Of 855 coats of arms indexed, 
she has found 444, "touched up" 
the fading colors of 312, and has 
collected material on around 100. 

"The study of heraldry is par- 
ticularly fascinating in the way 
in which it ties up history. After 
all, heraldry began, so to speak, 
in Biblical times, and could be 
said to exist today in the insignia 
worn by the soldiers. After all, 
that is how a family's coat of 
arms began. So you see, it is 
really an up-to-date subject!" 



"All it needed was a little dust- 
ing off," said ex-sergeant John 
Mitchell, speaking of his mem- 
ory of Wellesley life. "Getting 
back into the swing of things 
really isn't as hard as I had ex- 
pected," remarked the newly re- 
turned member of the Depart- 
ment of History," though of 
course, if I'd started in right 
after my discharge last October, 
it would have seemed very dif- 
ferent." 

During the war Mr. Mitchell, 
who taught here in 1942-43, spent 
a year in France doing interro- 
gation work for the army. Hav- 
ing lived in France for a year 
and a half as a boy and again 
while doing research work for 
his dissertation he was familiar 
with the country, and interested 
to observe the differences in 
post-war France. 

"The French, after the German 
occupation, have acquired a 
queer combination of super na- 
tionalism and indifference to 
work, both of which come from 
being kicked around so long by 
the Nazis. Of course it was a 
terrific psychological blow for 
them to be so completely beaten 
and subjected," he said. Mr. Mit- 
chell remembered being told by 
many persons that they couldn't 



get people to work for them 
"which is certainly not in keeping 
with the usual industrious char- 
acter of the French nation." Of 
the super nationalism, Mr. Mitch- 
ell said, "The people have such in- 
tense pride in their nation and 
the accomplishments of their sol- 
diers in battle that it amounts 
almost to chauvinism." Mr. 
Mitchell did not however, notice 
any Fascist tendencies in post- 
war France. 

In spite of obstacles resulting 
from the widespread destruction 
throughout the country, recon- 
struction is coming along fairly 
well. Mr. Mitchell feels that the 
food situation is only acute in 
the south. Almost everything in 
the line of food, even "steak and 
roast beef ,is available in Paris, 
though the price "is pretty ter- 
rific." 

After graduating from Yale, 
Mr. Mitchell taught in Hartford 
and New Haven schools before 
coming to Wellesley. After his 
graduate work in France and 
more recent war experiences, he 
is quite content with the idea of 
a more restful life with his wife 
and two children, a girl of 17 
months, and a son, 3 years old. 
Of his daughter he remarked, 
"We're definitely grooming her 
for Wellesley."

Libe Offers 
Exhibits of 
Old Books 

Early American Printing 
Shows Thought Trends 

In Old New England 

"We try to do two things in 
our exhibits," said Miss Blanche 
McCrum, Head Librarian, in 
speaking of the library's ex- 
hibitions in general, "and that is 
both to present rare material 
generally unknown to the col- 
lege and material contributing to 
ideas stirring on campus." The 
four current exhibitions in the 
library fulfill this aim and evince 
the thought and care that goes 
into them. 

Probably the most interesting 
exhibit, and certainly the rarest, 
is the one on Early American 
Printing. Arranged by Miss 
Hannah French, Research Lib- 
rarian, it is the first such ex- 
hibition to be given here. The 
display centers about a book on 
the Cambridge Press during the 
period 1638 to 1692. Its author, 
George Parker Winshop has 
made a thorough study of this 
Press, the first in America. Ex- 
amples of early printing in the 
United States are far more rare 
than are examples of early Euro- 
pean printing, although the first 
book printed in this country was 
not done until 1640, about a 
century after the English Caxton. 
The library does not possess a 
copy of this first book, the Bay 
Psalm Book, but there is a fac- 
simile of it in the display case 
in the Circulation Hall. In the 
front hall are two editions of the 
first Bible printed in Indian 
which was also the first Bible 
printed in the United States. 
There is considerable local in- 
terest attached to these two 
books as they were printed in 
1661-63 by John Eliot, an apostle 
to the Indians, who preached to 
a fairly large settlement of them 
in Natick, Mass. 

The exhibition of Early Amer- 
ican Printing is continued up- 
stairs in the hall outside the 
Treasure Room. Here the collec- 
tion is arranged to show trends 
in the development of thought in 
and concerning New England 
along the lines of theology, lit- 
erature, history, travel, politics, 
and instruction for the young. 

The material displayed here 
gives a survey of the history of 
our country in its early years, 
as well as of the history of print- 
ing.

Boston Exhibit 
Shows Work of 
Modern Artists 

Picasso Work Outstanding 

In Display Including 

Dali, Miro and Gris 

Critic Anna Campbell, '46 

There are few common charac- 
teristics that one can find in the 
paintings of Salvador Dali, Juan 
Gris, Joan Miro and Pablo Pi- 
casso, whose works are in the 
current exhibition at the Insti- 
tute of Modern Art in Boston. 
Their Spanish background and 
outstanding positions in twen- 
tieth century art probably in- 
spired the selection of their 
paintings for group exhibition. 

It seems superfluous to say 
that Picasso is probably our 
greatest living artist. Recog- 
nized for over forty years, he 
still continues to dominate the 
scene with his constant experi- 
mentation and prolific output. 
Although his paintings in the 
Boston exhibition are hardly in- 
dicative of the range and depth 
of his artistic production, they 
are outstanding achievements in 
themselves and somewhat dwarf 
tre rest of the show. Still Life 
on a Table is an aspiring bid to 
monumentality. although its orig- 
inal inspiration came from the 
homeliest objects of daily life. 

Another pioneer in the cubist 
movement was Juan Gris. His 
career was cut short by his death 
in 1927 and prevented any devia- 
tion from the cubistic line. There 
are several excellent examples of 
his flat architectural style in the 
exhibition. 

Joan Miro 

Joan Miro belongs to the gen- 
eration of artists following a 
decade after Picasso. One can 
hardly place him among the cu- 
bists as his highly personal style 
defies classification. In the pres- 
ent exhibition, some indication of 
his stylistic development is given. 
Starting with the sombre palette 
that seems to reflect his Spanish

background, his painting gradu- 
ally becomes more abstract and 
in Harlequin's Carnival of 1925 
he begins to reach out for new 
symbols. 

Birds and Insects and La Po- 
etesse are later works indicating 
the imagination, humor and fine 
color sense which we associate 
with his name today. Miro's art 
possesses a great deal of charm 
and child-like freshness along 
with its high technical achieve- 
ments. One might feel the need 
of a museum or hall of learning 
in which to display Picasso's 
monumental products, but the 
observer feels completely at ease 
with Miro's delightful paintings. 
Futility Expressed By Dali 
One may well wonder why 
Dali's paintings should be in- 
cluded with those of the other 
artists as he is hardly an artist 
of equal calibre. In many re- 
spects he is a typical product of 
the twentieth century — typical 
not of the positive creative ele- 
ments in contemporary life but 
of the materialistic, destructive 
and chaotic tendencies which 



made possible a second World 
War. Succumbing to the sense 
of futility and disillusionment 
prevalent in the twenties and 
drawing superficially from Freud, 
he was readily accepted by the 
surrealist group. His peculiar 
contribution to their doctrine of 
the reality of the subconscious 
world lies in his study of the in- 
dividual person's control over his 
dreams and the development of 
his discoveries through "para- 
noic processes of thought". 

Dali is undoubtedly gifted 
technically in his use of jewel- 
like colors and meticulous detail. 



Laughton, Tone 
Durbin Cavort 
In New Movie 

Helen Broderick Sole 

Bright Light in Rehash 

Of Cinderella Story 

"Because of Him", in spite of 
its artistic inadequacies, provides 
an amusing evening. Deanna 
Durbin plays a stage struck lass 
who fraudulently obtains the sig- 
nature of a famous actor, 
(played by Charles Laughton) 
on a letter of recommendation 
to the producer of Franchot 
Tone's new play. Said producer 
is captivated by Miss Durbin's 
charm, and is willing to hand her 
the lead in the play, although 
Tone, who has seen through her 
ruse, strenuously objects. After 
Deanna has inadvertently gotten 
her name on the front page sev- 
eral times, Laughton suddenly 
realizes that she has talent, and 
consents to play opposite her. 
Franchot fumes ineffectually. 
The ending, which attempts to 
justify Franchot Tone's appear- 
ance in the picture, is so unbe- 
lievable that it draws the biggest 
laugh of the film. The plot is 
weary from overwork and the 
acting is only mediocre. 

Charles Laughton, as a hammy 
actor overdoes his part amusing- 
ly at first, but he begins to wear 
on the nerves as the picture pro- 
gresses. Miss Durbin is her us- 
ual sprightly self, although the 
script gives her little chance to 
display whatever acting talent 
she may possess. Franchot 
Tone's part offers him no oppor- 
tunities whatsoever. The film is 
redeemed by Helen Broderick, 
whose salty humor is too seldom 
found in today's movies. Playing 
Miss Durbin's guardian angel 
and roommate, Miss Broderick 
does everything from serve stew 
to interview reporters, all very 
wittily. An author may someday 
recognize her talents and give 
her a role in which she gets a 
handsome hero she so well de-

Stars in First 
Telegraph Meet 

The first of two swimming 
meets, the results of which will 
constitute Wellesley's entries in 
the National Intercollegiate Tele- 
graphic Swimming Meet, was 
held at the George Howe Daven- 
port pool Thursday night, Feb. 
28. There were eight events, six 
individual races and two relay 
races. 

Each contestant may have en- 
tered any three of the individ- 
ual races plus either or both of 
the relays. Time is the important 
thing in a telegraphic meet. Of- 
ficial times were taken on the 
first and second places in each 
heat of each event. The best 
times made for first and second 
places in each event will be sent 
in to represent Wellesley in the 
National Meet. 

First place in total points won 
at the Thursday night's meet 
goes to Camilla Chandler with 
24 points, second place to Nancy 
Patterson with 18 points, and 
third place to Barbara Fay with 
17 points. 

National records have been 
established for all of the events.

Talkson Presen tEduca tion 



In connection with the "Win- 
dow to the World" lecture series, 
Mrs. Betka Papanek, wife of Dr. 
Jan Papanek, Minister Plenipo- 
tentiary for Czechoslovakia ad- 
dressed the college yesterday 
afternoon in Pendleton Hall. Her 
subject was "Education in Cen- 
tral Euorpe Today." 

Anniversary of Masaryk 
Mrs. Papanek was here on the 
occasion of the birthday of the 
late Thomas Garrigue Masaryk, 
first president of Czechoslovakia, 
who, by his philosophical writ- 
ings and educational activities as 
professor at the Charles Uni- 
versity in Prague, influenced the 
democratic liberation movement 
of the Czechs and Slovaks as well 
as of the Southern Slavs. Ma- 
saryk worked in exile? during 
World War I for the liberation 
of his fellow country-men from 
Austro - Hungarian domination 
and proclaimed the independence 
of the Czechoslovak people on 
October 26, 1918 from Inde- 
pendence Hall in Philadelphia. 
He is the author of The Making 
of the State, which describes his 
activities leading to the estab- 
lishment of the Czechoslovak Re- 
public.

Dr. Haroutounian Concludes CA 
Religious Forum in Third Lecture 



Dr. Joseph Haroutounian con- 
cluded the annual Religious For- 
um sponsored by the Wellesley 
College Christian Association 
with the last two lectures in a 
series of three given in Pendle- 
ton Hall on Tuesday and Wed- 
nesday nights, February 23 and 
24. Dr. Haroutounian, a graduate 
of Columbia University and Un- 
ion Theological Seminary, and a 
former member of the Depart- 
ment of Biblical History at 
Wellesley College, spoke on 
"Where Is God?" and "On Being 
Wise and Joyful". 

Dr. Haroutounian, in his lec- 
ture entitled "Where Is God?" 
said that logicians define God 
by reason, but it is not possible 
to find God in this manner. Thus, 
by logic, the philosopher works 
back to the "first cause" and "un- 
moved mover"principles. 

We must argue as human be- 
ings for the existence of God, 
not as logicians, Dr. Haroutou- 
nian continued. By rational 
thinking, it is possible to affirm 
or deny the existence of God, and 
neither way can be proved right 
or wrong. But to reason as a 
human being is to reason as a 
man who is recognizing his own 
sins and seeks justice and mercy. 

God can combine justice and 
mercy, Dr. Haroutounian said, 



which no human being can do. 
An illustration of the fact that 
no man can combine these two 
virtues was given in the case of 
condemning a man to be hanged. 
To let him go is the merciful 
way; to hang him is the just. It 
is impossible for man to be both 
at the same time, but these vir- 
tues are immanent in God. 

In his concluding lecture, "On 
Being Wise and Joyful", Dr. 
Haroutounian discussed the ap- 
parent antithesis of wisdom and 
joy, and the resolution of their 
differences in the knowledge of 
God. The simplest kind of joy is 
that of pure physical well-being, 
Dr. Haroutounian said, and the 
subsequent addition of wisdom 
through education, detracts from 
this joy. Thus, the wise man has 
no joy and the joyful man has no 
wisdom, and to reconcile these 
two, a belief in God is essential. 

True wisdom is not the wis- 
dom of the great thinker, but 
the wisdom of knowing God, he 
added. The wisdom of the great 
thinker is that of self-righteous- 
ness, and there is no joy for him. 
True wisdom, however, is found 
in the man who will recognize 
that he cannot live by his own 
righteousness and must live by 
God's. This wisdom will bring 
great joy. 




"I'll either go broke or make 
money. Either one . . . doesn't 
matter. I'm just as happy broke," 
drawled Hugh Clay Paulk, ex- 
naval lieutenant and now a pro- 
moter, talking over his newest 
venture, a jazz concert in Sym- 
phony Hall, March 11. Explain- 
ing his origin quite simply by, 
"I was born at an early age in 
Tennesee," Hugh described his 
latest idea, an Eddie Condon re- 
cital. According to him, "Boston 
needs Condon." 

Picturing Boston as a really 
"classical town", Paulk, however, 
went on to describe the rennais- 
sance of jazz. "To some people, 
jazz is just a lot of noise. But 
real jazz lovers can differentiate 
between an artist's contribu- 
tions." He referred to "Virgil 
Thomson's comment in a recent 
issue of Vogue, "What no Euro- 
peans make as our men do is la 
musica americana', that spontan- 
eous ensemble of individual free- 
doms that we call non-commer- 
cial swing. The improvising of it 
in twelve parts by our greatest 
instrumental virtuosos under Ed- 
die Condon's direction has provid- 
ed the most absorbing musical 
experience that I have been 
through." 

On terminal leave after 33 
months of service on the heavy 
previously prepared for naval 
service as an engineering officer 
by completing an agricultural 
course in a southern university. 
Although his first venture into 
the concert field, Condon is by 
no means his first venture. 

"This is certainly an interest- 
ing world," he observed, "You go 
into one venture and there's no 
telling where it will lead." (For 
the sake of those who are not 
acquainted with the career of 
promoter Hugh Clay Paulk, his 
reference was to former experi- 



ences in the surplus boot field, 
the stamp machine business, and 
parachute sales.) Of his very 
first venture, he said, "I was 
messing around at the officers' 
club over on Arlington street, 
and I got to thinking that this 
Christmas was going to be the 
biggest ever. And I commenced 
wondering how I could get in 
on it. Well, I saw an advertise- 
ment offering 1,000 pairs of Navy 
fliers' boots, and I knew I had to 
have them. 

"I studied and studied them. 
Then I put in a bid with a little 
money I had saved over from 
the Navy. With the professional 
buyers it was just another day's 
work, but with me it was life 
and death, and I outguessed 
them. So there I was with 1,000 
pairs of boots all the same size, 
and I said, 'Hugh, you're a gon- 
er". 

"So then I began putting ads 
in the papers," he continued, 
and orders began pouring in. It 
was a dream come true. There I 
was, opening letters every morn- 
ing with checks falling out. I 
had some boots for sale in a 
store downtown and every last 
pair was sold in about a month. 
And there I was with a packet of 
folding money." 

At a recent Heifetz concert at 
Symphony Hall he hatched the 
idea for the forthcoming Con- 
don concert. 

"I was leaning back in my 
seat, listening to the violin and 
observing the chandeliers. Some 
of the bulbs were missing and I 
began to wonder how on earth 
the maintenance crew would go 
about replacing them. Then I 
began to wonder how many peo- 
ple the hall held. The hall was 
packed. Why wouldn't a good 
jazz concert have just as many 
followers, I reasoned. I've since

lesley for many years, Fedy was 
all set to go to Radcliffe where 
her sister had gone, but a drive 
around Wellesley made her 
change her mind. 

Fedy pointed out the difference 
between the American colleges 
and those of Italy. Each city 
has its own large university 
which has no accommodations for 
boarding students. Student ac- 
tivity is consequently less and 
there is little mixing of classes. 

Concerning the present situa- 
tion in Italy Fedy believes that 
the early revival of the tourist 
trade might be profitable for the 
country, "for Italy is poor and 
the tourists were a great source 
of wealth." 



Students Must 

Claim all Lost 
Books, Mittens 

Miss Barbara Maynard, manag- 
er of the Information Bureau, 
calls to the attention of students 
the long list of unclaimed articles 
which have been turned in to the 
Lost and Found office. Books, 
mittens, gloves, scarves, fountain 
pens, and glasses cases are 
among the articles which, if still 
unclaimed at the end of the year, 
will be given to the Thrift Shop. 
Miss Maynard asks that girls 
who have lost anything call at 
the Lost and Found at the Infor- 
mation Bureau in Green Hall as 
soon as possible. 

heard about how Duke Ellington 
and Hazel Scot did here. Condon, 
who has played here before, 
should do as well again." 

Following up his thoughts 
with quick action, Hugh imme- 
diately flew to New York, where 
Eddie Condon, irked somewhat 
by his recent brush with the 
D. A. R., agreed to his scheme. 
Now with the backing of many 
of Boston's leading socialites, 
Paulk predicts success for March 
11. "It's lots of fun whether I'm 
making money or not," he said 
with a broad grin. 
Eddie Condon's "Barefoot Mob" 

So, under the enthusiastic pro- 
motion of Hugh Paulk, Eddie 
Condon, the Indiana boy who 
took American jazz music out 
of the back room and put it on 
the concert stage, will bring his 
"barefoot mob" to Symphony 
Hall, on March 11, at 8:30 p.m. 
From Paulk's description, Eddie 
Condon is one of the greatest 
talkers alive. He loves speech, 
not simply for its own sake, but 
for the sake of what it can con- 
vey. He loves good jazz and good 
whiskey. He is generally ac- 
knowledged to be one of the 
greatest guitarists in jazz. Ac- 
cording to some critics, "Eddie 
Condon is the Chicago style", 
talked about in so many jazz cir- 
cles. Of the whole band in gen- 
eral, Hugh says, "They're pretty 
sharp."

the Superior Court were abso- 
lutely perfect, the following are 
some of the qualities she should 
have. In the first place she 
should think quickly and speak 
well to take her part in Cabinet 
and Senate. She must be able to 
give time to attend Village Junior 
and House Presidents Council 
meetings to hear discipline prob- 
lems and to keep the penalty 
system relatively uniform for the 
college. She must be able to en- 
courage and direct the discus- 
sions as she presides over Dis- 
trict and Superior' court. She 
should be able to look at situa- 
tions objectively and be able to 
get along with people easily. Add 
to these qualities imagination, 
initiative, a sense of responsibil- 
ity and a sense of humor and 
there you have her, the perfect 
Chief Justice. 

Alice Dodds, 
Chief Justice.

Chairman of House 

Presidents' Council 

The prime function of the 
Chairman of House Presidents' 
Council is to lead the Council 
made up of the House Presidents 
of the ten upperclass dormitories 
and the head of Commuters. To 
make this Council effective, the 
Chairman needs, besides out- 
and-out leadership, to be able to 
unite the Council so that the 
members will work well together 
and to organize its objectives. 
Next in importance is the Chair- 
man's work as a liaison officer. 
This is a two-way relation since 
the Chairman is in close contact 
with the Administration and re- 
lays its wishes to the H.P.s as 
well as passing on the sugges- 
tions of the H.P.s and their 
housemates to the Administra- 
tion. The latter is especially im- 
portant since Wellesley has no 
regularly constituted House of 
Representatives and House Presi- 
dents' Council can do a good 
service by making known the 
student viewpoint. Also, the 
Chairman works closely with the 
other C. G. officers on such 
things as Senate, Court, and 
Cabinet, and she functions as 
the head of the Heads of Work.

Chairman.

Forum President 

The president of Forum should 
have a healthy interest in public 
affairs. She must be already 
adapted to or at least easily 
adaptable to reading the newspa- 
pers, forming her own opinions, 
and being able to express her- 
self orally and in writing. Previ- 
ous experience in the work of 
Forum or any of its brancehs im- 
proves these qualities and sup- 
plies a knowledge of the organi- 
zation. The administration of 
Forum seems to be handled best 
by someone who can plan ahead, 
systematize her own work and 
the work of her assistants. She 
must, however, have the aca- 
demic schedule and the tempera- 
ment to drop everything in the 
case of an emergency, and emer- 
gencies occur with infuriating 
regularity. Forum is a coopera- 
tive organization. Its success is 
not solely within the power of 
the president. Her responsibility 
in that respect is to be able to 
choose capable assistants and to 
delegate work to them — and here 
she should approach that rare 
quality of bossing people around 
without having them resent it.

President of Forum.

Christian Association 
President 

The central purpose of C. A. is 
to help girls in their search for 
a faith applicable to life. The 
president should, therefore, have 
a spiritual depth, not necessarily 
articulate, but nevertheless evi- 
dent in her daily living. Since 
the job is not well defined, it will 
largely be determined by the in- 
terest and initiative of the presi- 
dent. Her ability in delegating 
responsibility and in leading peo- 
ple should free her from limit- 
ing details, so she may have 
time to evaluate past activities 
in the light of the purpose of the 
organization, and to direct it in 
meeting new campus needs. For 
this reason, primary qualifica- 
tions are sensitivity to the needs 
of others; and receptivity to 
their suggestions.

Service Fund President 

Service Fund above all needs 
in its chairman enthusiastic in- 
terest in its work of represent- 
ing to the world Wellesley's in- 
terest in furthering humani'tarian 
efforts. Certain executive qual- 
ities are also important, the abil- 
ity to organize, to delegate re- 
sponsibility, and to plan a cam- 
paign for funds, and the admin- 
istration of such funds, almost 
six months ahead of the time in 
which it is to occur. After the 
excitement of the fall drive, the 
pledges still have to be collected 
weekly and monthly. Therefore, 
I would add "staying power" as 
an important quality in a chair- 
man — and a sense of humor.

President 

The Athletic Association has 
no presidential mold to fit a 
girl into, but rather wants a 
head whose own personality will 
shape the organization itself. A 
girl with leadership ability who 
can stir people to action; who 
can organize and plan not only 
an overall guide for the year, 
but seasonal plans as well and 
can direct people to carry them 
out; who can speak well and in- 
still her enthusiasm in others; 
who is herself an interested par- 
ticipant in sports; and who, in 
an emergency, can wash lights.

WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, MARCH 7, 1946 



Around the Vil 

Hi there! Do you realize it's al- 
most molasses and tonic time. 
Spring's a coming! All wise 
Wellesleyites know there's no 
place like GROSS STRAUSS for 
a very gay Spring wardrobe. At 
this very moment they have a 
nice collection of tissue wool 
dresses both sport and dressy . . . 
not to mention the wide selection 
of date dresses. And new merch- 
andise coming in every day. 

April showers may bring May 
flowers, but they also make for 
sniffles and stringy hair. HILL 
AND DALE has the solution to 
this problem. The shop has been 
able to obtain a few slickers and 
sou'westers which are just the 
thing to keep that trickle of 
water from running down your 
spine. The slickers are $6.50 and 
the sou'westers a mere $1.95 . . . 
all of which is quite wonderful 
considering how scarce these 
items are. 

No more puddle jumping wor- 
ries . . . also no more splashed 
stockings. Avoid Spring's minor 
problems bv calling LE BLANC 
TAXI at Wellesley 1600. 

With the coming of Ash 
Wednesday and the Lenten sea- 
son Wellesley's attention is fix- 
ed on religious matters. HATHA- 
WAY HOUSE has a selection of 
religious books which it would 
pay to look over. They have 
The Great Divorce by C. E. 
Lewis, author of the Screwtape 
Letters, and be sure not to over- 
look Gladys Schmidt's David 
The King. 

For very efficient, reliable and 
definitely on time service we 
recommend COLLEGE TAXI. 
P.S. They pack, crate and ship 
anything anywhere. 

We've discovered that the rail- 
road just doesn't believe us when 
we say if you give us the tickets 
now we'll bring the money down 
next month. This naturally com- 
plicates our plan for that big 
New York weekend. We've dis- 
covered that the best thing to do 
in a case like this is to trot our

ilia Chandler came closest to the 
National mark, swimming the 
event in 24 seconds. 

The second of the two swim- 
ming meets will be held at the 
college pool Thursday night, 
March 7 at 7:45. All of the con- 
testants who swam last Thurs- 
day night and those who were 
eligible but unable to be in the 
first meet, may enter the second 
meet provided that all except 
freshmen have had a medical 
check-up at the Infirmary before 
March 7 to be approved for com- 
petition. 

All members of the college are 
invited to watch the swimming 
meet and cheer their favorite 
contestants. 



Smith Conference - 

/Continued from Page 1) 
"We see it as a provision we will 
want at certain times, to be used 
more and more as intercollege in- 
terest increases and as coopera- 
tion becomes closer," explained 
Mac Cullen, Editor of News. The 
exchange editors will meet next 
fall to investigate this system 
which will be modeled on one 
now used by Canadian Univer- 
sities. 

Mr. Samuel Sharkey, Jr., of the 
Foreign Desk of the New York* 
Times and Mr. Robeson Bailey, 
Assistant Professor of English at 
Smith spoke at the inaugural 
banquet Saturday evening. Fol- 
lowing this the delegates split up 
into four groups, Editorial, 
News-Feature, Make-up, and 
Business, to discuss their com- 
mon problems. Group confer- 
ences were continued on Sunday 
morning, and in the afternoon all 
delegates met in full session for 
the final conference. 

Colleges represented at the 
conference included Amherst, 
Bowdoin, Dartmouth, Harvard, 
Mass. State, Connecticut, Mount 
Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Wel- 
lesley, and Vassar. MIT, Prince- 
ton, Wesleyan, Williams, and 
Yale are also members of the 
permanent conference, but were 
unable to send delegates to this 
first meeting. 



'46 '47 Majors 
Feted at Teas 

Business and pleasure respec- 
tively occasioned meetings of 
history and zoology majors 
March 2 and 3 in the Rec. Build- 
ing. 

At 7:30 p. m. Sunday, senior 
history majors met at tea with 
Miss Judith Williams, chairman, 
and other members of the depart- 
ment, in informal discussions of 
the general examination. 

Junior and senior zoology ma- 
jors met at 4 p. m. Monday to 
hear Miss Alice Boring, former 
member of the Wellesley Depart- 
ment of Zoology, tell dS her ex- 
periences in wartime where she 
was a member of the faculty of 
Yenching University. 

Now a visiting professor in 
zoology at Mount Holyoke Col- 
lege, Miss Boring had remained 
in China during much of the 
Japanese occupation, teaching 
biology in a concentration camp. 
She was one of the Americans to 
return to this country from 
China several years ago on the 
Gripsholm.

a little rock salt to use as a

cents and returned proudly car-

Dry perfume makes your 
favorite Roger & Gallet 
fragrance go farther. Its 
tantalizing scent is released 
gradually when patted di- 
rectly on warm skin. A dash 
in the hem of your dance 
dress fills the air with fade- 
less perfume. Doused inside 
your blouse, the effect is 
really terrific! Use it regu-

liquid perfume.
